Kaneville—Kaneville is celebrating Christmas with all the delights of the season on Saturday, Dec 4. The village will be alive with food, gifts and entertainment.

The sight of a horse-drawn wagon carrying passengers in a leisurely tour of the town is one mark of an old-fashioned Christmas. Add to that a cookie walk at the United Methodist Church and a cake walk in the gym of the Community Center, both from 9 to 11 a.m., and the picture is complete.

Kids can find Santa at the fire barn and story time at the library on Saturday morning.

Those looking for seasonal gifts can walk the craft displays both at the library and in the gym from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Hill’s store will also stock gift baskets that can be purchased.

As part of their customer appreciation, village businesses will serve snacks all morning. Hill’s Store will give out free peppermint ice cream and cocoa. Old Second Bank will have breakfast food until its noon closing.

Setting the Christmas scene, local students will provide musical entertainment at the library.

“We have a lot going on,” business owner Pat Hill said.
